MU Chancellor Brady Deaton released a brief statement to the media via email Thursday about the arrest of football coach Gary Pinkel on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. The full text is below.
"I was deeply disappointed to hear the news about Coach Pinkel. Coaches must hold themselves to the very highest of standards. His lack of judgment is especially concerning since he serves as a role model for our students. I expect Mike Alden to take appropriate action, and he has my support in doing so. I also expect and believe that Coach Pinkel will accept full responsibility for his actions and will act in accordance with the standards he expects from his players."
